Long Description:
RECOVERY NOTE BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1969 (WOK) STATION MARK, REFERENCE MARKS 1 AND 2 AND THE AZIMUTH MARK WERE RECOVERED AND ARE IN GOOD CONDITION. REFERENCE MARK 1 IS SOUTHEAST OF THE STATION, NOT NORTHEAST, AS IN THE 1963 RECOVERY NOTE OF THE STATION. THE HORIZONTAL ANGLE TO THE REFERENCE MARKS AND THE AZIMUTH MARK CHECKED THE PREVIOUS DATA ADEQUATELY BUT THE DISTANCE TO THE REFERENCE MARKS DID NOT CHECK. A SURVEY TOWER COULD NOT BE ERECTED OVER THE STATION MARK DUE TO IT BEING TOO CLOSE TO THE LOOKOUT TOWER, THEREFORE DISTANT OBSERVATIONS WERE MADE FROM A TOWER ERECTED OVER REFERENCE MARK 2. A FIRST ORDER TRAVERSE CONNECTION WAS MADE FROM THE STATION MARK TO REFERENCE MARK 2. THE 1963 DESCRIPTION OF HOW TO REACH THE STATION IS ADEQUATE.
